Thanks...you're doing great.

I know that I'm overdue for a post about the Magic's trade deadline manuevers, but I'm experiencing some delays in the completionof my company's monthly magazine due to the inconsiderate imcompetence of a member of our Board. She writes a letter to the membership each month and, though I clearly stated that the 22nd was the deadline for submissions, her letter has still yet to arrive in my inbox. Of course, this means that I have to delay the finalization of a couple of key elements to the magazine and will be stuck finishing up the magazine until the final hour or so of this afternoon. I swear, next month we might have a half empty magazine as my little way of driving home the point that I operate on a deadline that must be adhered to. Either that or I'll end here posting about how much I hate the peopel I work with/for...yeah, the latter is probably a more likely scenario. I'll post something this weekend...I swear.

I watched a lot of the combine this weekend on NFL Network. Chad "Action" Jackson ran a 4.32. Fastest among all wideouts (including Moss). And I can't remember him dropping a pass in workouts.

Mark said...

He looks pretty smart for going into the draft this year absed on what he's done thus far in workouts. I knew that he had good speed, but was a surprised to see that he ran such a great 40 time. Any news on what Dee Webb ran?

Greg said...

Dark the Shark had four blocks in 19 minutes of playing time against Houston.


Derek Hagans looked awful. He dropped more balls than Lance Armstrong. OH!!!

Mark said...

Hagans' stock has plummeted as bad as any receiver in recent memory. He was a sure-fire first rounder to most but had an awful week of practice at the Senior Bowl (I heard. Surprisingly, I chose not to visit Alabama in January)as he had a ton of drops.

Maybe this will allow him to fall to the Bucs in the second or third round. Though I've only seen him a couple fo times, his on field performance at ASU would seem to bode well for his NFL future, though the drops are certainly problematic.

He ran a much better 40 then most expected though so while he has shown a case of the drops I don't think he'll fall too far.

CFunk28 said...

Joe's right. Hagans ran like a 4.41 or something like that. It was sub 4.45. He did have some drops though. I didn't see the DBs do anything. I think that the defensive workouts were today.

Obviously the best advice that Jay Cutler could've received this past weekend was to get a new haircut. He looks like he has downs or something.

Mark said...

He thinks he some sort of Beatle or something. They make 'em weird up there at Vandy. I didn't realize that Hagans was that fast. While he may not drop to the Bucs, I'm willing to bet he at least falls into the mid second round on Draft Day. How's a 12 pack sound Joseph?

One more thing: Isn't the surface at Indy supposedly slow? I remember hearing that in year's past. It certainly doesn't appear that way based on the times that Hagans and Jackson have put up.

joe said...

I've heard the track was a bit faster this year then in years past. Who knows for sure but I read it somewhere in an article about VY and Bush not running.

I'm not willing to take that bet because I think that's where he'll end up, maybe early 2ns. I just didn't think he would drop to the 3rd. I also wouldn't be amazed if Pitt or Seattle took him at the end of the first depending what happens in FA.

Anyone else hear the rumor of VY's 6 score on the Wonderlic? Some people have come out against it but it would be hilarious if it was true. Anything below 10 means you're in effect retarded. I'm crossing my fingers on this one.

Mark said...

I don't care how it's spun, VY is um...not so smart. If you've ever seen some of the sample questions, then you realize it's not exaclty the MENSA application.

No bet? You pussy. You're right though about him going mid 2nd as well as him possibly even get scooped up late in the first depending on team needs and who's been selected.

CFunk28 said...

I've heard that the majority of the Wonderlic is at an 8th grade level. And Hughes is right, the sample questions aren't too challenging. I guess having to do 50 questions in 8 minutes is just too much pressure for some. As opposed to having 300lb lineman fall on top of you.
